Default HP G60 Laptop w/GeForce 8800m, no audio over HDMI

I've had this problem before, where I connect my laptop to my Panasonic plasma TV thru the HDMI connector. When I had Ubuntu 8.10 (Jaunty), I managed to fix the problem with this thread:

Now I have Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). Everything is updated, I have nvidia drivers 254, I've also updated Alsa to I was having trouble getting audio to sound proper in the headphone jack, but I was only getting the rear surround channel (no voices, only soundtrack).

Everything should be mixed down on the fly to stereo L-R, and I should have possible routing to the headphones, the built-in speakers, and the HDMI. But I do NOT have anything in the HDMI.

Audio is in Pulseaudio, and working (I see the VUmeters on screen and they are active). Just not in the HDMI.

Is there anything I should be looking for in terms of config? I know my way around Ubuntu, but somehow I think I must be missing this one switch.
